If you have a cat or multiple cats, you likely have a space in your home where you put the litter boxes that is far, far away from other normal living spaces. Because let’s face it, having a litter box in or near your living quarters can put a damper on life: the smell, the mess, the litter dust…
Last year, with the help of Tidy Cats, we overhauled our litter room to go from eew to ooh through our “Littervention“… and this year, we’re taking it up a notch. We’re creating an indoor kitty litter garden in your litter area that both you and your cats can enjoy year-round.
Check out this progression from 2015 (eew) to 2016 (ooh) to 2017 (ahhh)
How To Turn Your Litter Room Into An Indoor Kitty Litter Garden Sanctuary
It’s actually pretty easy to do this and the whole project, including the cat-safe plants, cost about $300. I always reference the ASPCA’s directory on toxic and non-toxic plants for cats before bringing any plant into my home.
Here’s what we used – but use your imagination and choose items that fit with your own home!
You’ll also need some simple tools including:
How To Create A Cat Garden Room Like This One…
Step 1: Assemble the cart according to the enclosed instructions
Step 2: Assemble the stool according to the enclosed instructions
Step 3: Saw off the ends of the trellis (those ends would normally stick into the ground)
Step 4: Randomly place the 5 small plastic containers on the trellis and drill small holes on the trellis where you want to place them. Pre-drilling the hole will make it easier to affix the planters with screws
Step 5: Use a screwdriver and one screw to affix the small plastic pots to the trellis
Step 6: Affix the trellis to the wall. Mark where the wall studs are and use a level to ensure that the trellis is even on the wall. Again, use a drill to make holes in the trellis, then use screws to affix the trellis to the wall.
Now that you have the major structures in place, it’s time to decorate with potted plants!
